On 16 October, bar and restaurant group, Drake & Morgan, will open its 22nd venue The Allegory in Principal Place on the Shoreditch borders.
Designed by Fusion Design and Architecture, The Allegory will be located on the ground floor of Brookfield’s premium 600,000 sq ft mixed-use office, residential and retail space in Bishopsgate which is already home to internet retailer Amazon’s new HQ.
The 6,337 sq ft space includes a large bar and separate dining area providing a total of 145 covers, with an al fresco terrace seating an additional 86. Industrial foundations are complemented by carefully curated touches including eye-catching street art, geometric flooring and feature light fixtures, echoing Drake & Morgan’s unique style.
Open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner, The Allegory’s extensive menu will feature stylish small plates, sharing boards, superfood salads and substantial mains. An extensive drinks list includes a wide range of wines and champagnes, premium spirits, craft beers and creative cocktails/mocktails.
Managing director Jillian MacLean said: “Principal Place, The Un Square Mile, on the edge of Shoreditch, is an exciting new scheme in the heart of London’s tech community. The City of London is Drake & Morgan’s heartland and Principal Place, with its public piazza and buzzing location, is a landmark development and we are looking forward to The Allegory being a central part of it”.
As previously announced, Drake & Morgan will open two more bars and restaurants before the end of year in the Square Mile’s new Cannon Green building and on St Peter’s Square in Manchester.
